[OFFICIAL-L] Colleges of Health, Education, and Human Services and Liberal Arts to relocate next summer

Dear Wright State Community,

In our continuing pursuit to find ways to enhance university operations, the university will relocate two colleges on the Dayton Campus.

The College of Health, Education, and Human Services, which has offices spread among four different buildings, will move into a shared location in Millett Hall. This includes the Dean’s Office and the Schools of Education and Leadership; Nursing, Kinesiology, and Health Sciences; Professional Psychology; and Human Services and Social Work. Nursing labs will remain in the basement of University Hall during the first phase of the move. The labs will move to Millett Hall in the future.

College of Liberal Arts offices that are currently located in Millett Hall, including the Dean’s Office and the Schools of Humanities and Cultural Studies and Social Sciences and International Studies, will relocate into Allyn Hall. The School of Fine and Performing Arts will remain in the Creative Arts Center and the Tom Hanks Center for Motion Pictures.

This is an ideal time to begin planning for these moves. After forming a year ago, the College of Health, Education, and Human Services will benefit from a shared space. The College of Liberal Arts has implemented a new organizational structure that consolidates its departments into three new schools.

Relocating these colleges provides an opportunity for faculty and staff to shape their new spaces to facilitate more cross-disciplinary collaboration, which is a goal for each college.

Over the coming academic year, the university will work with the deans, chairs, faculty, and staff to ensure that each college’s new space is configured in a manner that meets its needs and is conducive to growth.

Faculty, staff, or students in the affected colleges should contact their deans if they have questions or concerns.
